The National Museum of Scotland is being given a £1.3m boost to help fund six new science and technology galleries.

The development – part of an £80m plan to restore the museum – is being funded by The Wellcome Trust and is set to open in 2016.

The new galleries will focus on biomedical science, including genetics and prosthetics, and will feature exhibits telling the story of Dolly the sheep among other breakthroughs.

A panel of top scientists and field experts will help to decide the content of the exhibition.
